What are the symptoms, diagnostic options, and preventive measures for ovarian cancer?

I have been reading about ovarian cancer and wondering about the role of Pap tests (Papanicolaou test) in its detection. Can you clarify if Pap tests are effective in identifying ovarian cancer, or are they mainly for detecting cervical issues? Also, are there specific symptoms or signs of ovarian cancer that women should be aware of? I am trying to understand more about preventive measures and early detection methods for ovarian cancer. Please help.

Can stem cell transplant help treat relapsed tumors in Hodgkin's lymphoma?

Hello doctor,

I am a 52-year-old male, and I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma a year back. To date, I have undergone ten cycles of ABVD (Adriamycin, Bleomycin, Vinblastine, and Dacarbazine), but they did not fully remove the tumor. The tumor relapsed again. The doctor advised to do the autologous stem cell transmission. What should I do? Please help.

Thank you.
